- All teachers should link curriculum learning with careers.
- Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subject teachers should highlight the relevance of STEM subjects for a wide range of future career paths.
- By the age of 14, every student has had the opportunity to learn how the different STEM subjects help people to gain entry to a wide range of careers.
- All subject teachers emphasise the importance of succeeding in English and maths.
Some ideas to engage your classes with careers are as follows:-
- Show a short video clip as a starter activity using the resources on careersbox / icould / firstcareers or BBC bitesize careers to show the relevance of lessons for possible future careers
- Discuss careers linked to specific parts of your curriculum —use this website to help you https://nationalcareers.service.gov.uk/explore-careers
- Set a homework task to research different careers related to your subject.
- Browse and use the careers lesson inserts on the world of work website—https://www.myworldofwork.co.uk/lesson-inserts
- Utilise STEM careers resources— https://www.stem.org.uk/resources
- Take into account growth industries in the Liverpool City Region—https://growthplatform.org/sectors/
